Reader letter: Time to ban dangerous high heels?
PUBLISHED: 13:42 04 October 2018
I find it rather odd to see that ladies like Mrs Beckham are continually shown wearing these atrocious high heels, when in the real world, ladies are suffering daily from deformed feet, as a result of wearing this type of footwear, since the government are continually reducing the places that ladies can get orthopaedic treatment for their feet.
Surely it is high time to either ban these extreme shoes or reinstate this chiropractic treatment for all ladies on the NHS?
Seeing Victoria Beckham promoting the footwear is extremely distasteful, it is all right for her with her millions, but to the average woman, all they have to look forward to is years of pain?
Many who get foot conditions cannot afford to pay for this treatment?
In the 1960s no one knew how dangerous these ‘high heels’ were, and the long-term effect they would have, now we have no excuse.
